Paul Abbate, who had been running the branch that oversees the FBI’s criminal and cyber investigations, will replace Bowdich as associate deputy director, a role that handles budget and personnel matters for the bureau.
David T. Resch, an assistant director of the Training Division at the FBI’s training academy in Quantico, Va. will take over for Abbate.
Wray also announced Andrew Vale as executive assistant director of the Human Resources Branch and Nancy McNamara as assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office.
